- Actress Andi Eigenmann shared on TWBA how she met her surfer boyfriend
- Andi’s beau is a champion surfer
- The actress said she met her boyfriend during one of her many visits to Siargao
During her recent guesting on ABS-CBN’s late-night talk show “Tonight with Boy Abunda” (TWBA), actress Andi Eigenmann shared how she met her current boyfriend after host Boy Abunda asked her about him.
Andi told Abunda that she first met her non-showbiz beau, Philmar Alipayo, during one of her many visits to Siargao; dubbed as the Philippines surfing capital.
The actress shared that when she met Philmar, she asked to have a photo with him. She said Philmar was kind of a celebrity in Siargao for being the first champion of the Philippine Surfing Championship Tour Men’s Division last year.
“Nung first time ko siyang na-meet ay nilapitan ko siya at nagpa-picture ako kasi siya iyong number one sa Philippine surfing last year,” she recalled.
She funnily shared that there are more people who are requesting to take pictures with Philmar than with her.
They first became friends after their initial meeting until they fell in love with other – unexpectedly, according to Andi.
“Hindi ko in-expect talaga. Sabi ko nga, ‘Itatanong pa ba iyon?’ Ang sarap-sarap main-love kapag nasa paradise ka,” she enthused.
She described Philmar as “simpleng tao na lumaki sa isla,” “so humble, so kind and “has the biggest heart she knows.”
